I am having a small problem with Joey.
I take him to work everyday. He is almost never alone. We crate him when we go out, but he stays on the bed with us at night. I bring him to work with me and there are no accidents at work anymore. I keep a close eye on him and he is closed in my office. He actually asks me to go out at work. He’ll jump up and lick me until we go out. Which is great! I tell him good boy Joey, lets go outside.
At home though it’s a different story, we’re sure to bring him out often but sometimes he just wont go, so we’ll bring him in and then ten minutes later there is a puddle in any given room. It is driving me crazy. He’s almost 6 months old! It is like at home he’ll just forget he can’t go inside. I’ll catch him in the act and say “JOEY NO”
and he runs to the door, which makes me think that he knows he’s not supposed to do that in the house.
Even in the middle of the night at home he’ll wake me up to tell me he has to go and I immediately jump up and bring him. It is so frustrating.
I don’t know how to correct this problem or how to teach him that the house is bad and the outside is good. We praise him when he does it outside and when he does it inside we correct him.
If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.
